It's Time To Bag A Bargain Before House Prices Soar..

Recommended Posts

I know it's not a newspaper in any sense of the word, but this is what's being fed to the great British public.. At least the comments are worth reading

bag a bargain spiel

Yet another ramping article by Sarah O'Grady :rolleyes:.

The Tory communities spokesman switched his second home allowance to the £470,000 property in his constituency of Peterborough when he bought it in November 2005.

Mr Jackson, who was elected to Parliament only six months before he moved in, claimed £304 for work on the pool. After being approached by The Daily Telegraph he conceded that the claim “could be construed as excessive” and agreed to repay the money. He also billed the taxpayer for more than £11,000 in professional fees and costs incurred during the move. He went on to claim thousands more in new furniture, carpets and appliances for the new house.

The MP had previously rented a £168,000 terraced house in the constituency for about £475 per month. Since moving into the larger house he has claimed interest charges on its mortgage of between £1,500 and £1,700 per month.

While he has designated the property as his second home for expenses purposes, his profile on the Conservative Party website says that he and his wife Sarah O’Grady, a journalist for a national newspaper, “live in central Peterborough with their baby daughter Isabel”.

The couple also own a house in Ealing, west London, which they bought in 1998. It is unclear how much they paid. The house next door was sold in 2003 for £481,125.
